### Gauss 3x3

Let A be a 3×3 matrix. We make a series of operations on A:
1. Replace number by the sum of times number plus times number .
2. number by .
3. Replace number by the sum of times number plus times number .
4. Exchange number and .
After these operations, the matrix becomes

.

What is the determinant of A ?

### Gauss 3x3 II

Let A be a 3×3 matrix with det(A) = . We make a series of operations on A:
